PayDay 3 is a highly anticipated addition to a beloved shooter franchise, eagerly awaited by its fan base.

You can team up with a crew of friends and collectively outwit (or overpower) law enforcement agencies. However, some players are wondering if you can play the game in single player mode. The title supports solo playthroughs, but many fans still have a problem with matchmaking. We will tell you all about it.
